Congregational Prayer

This week in our prayers we especially remember:

  • All those around the world feeling directly the adverse effects of unusual climate events – drought, fires, smoke, flooding, tornadoes.
  • Our government and health leaders, as they make decisions about safely allowing life to return to near pre-pandemic norms.
  • Our church’s Worship Committee, now chaired by Margie H., and Church Council, as they work at plans for in-person church services to safely resume.
  • That Jesus is “deeply moved” by our grief, hurts and disappointments. (John 11:33)
